Scaffolding Students' Skill Development by First Introducing Advanced Techniques through the Synthesis and [superscript 15]N NMR Analysis of Cinnamamides
Shuldburg, Sara; Carroll, Jennifer
Journal of Chemical Education, v94 n12 p1974-1977 Dec 2017
An advanced undergraduate experiment involving the synthesis and characterization of a series of six unique cinnamamides is described. This experiment allows for a progressive mastery of skills students need to tackle more complex NMR structure elucidation problems. Characterization of the products involves IR spectroscopy, GCMS, and proton, carbon, and nitrogen NMR analyses. Understanding the principles of advanced NMR techniques, including nitrogen NMR spectroscopy, is highly relevant to advanced organic chemistry students.
